    What I like is that the staff specially at the dining area are very courteous and helpful I have been to many resorts but one thing different about South Palms is that it has free dinner and the price is reasonable Definitely will be back in the future I had a wonderful time with my family and will refer to some of my friends What i also like is the free shuttle

    First, I would like to say thank you to the staff of South Palms. They were very accommodating from the moment we entered the gate up to the time we were checking out. Staff was very friendly from the manager to the maintenance. The resort was overall clean and there’s lots of things you can do while staying at the resort with the amenities offered all free of course (except for the spa). Room is nothing really special but it was clean. Food for breakfast and dinner buffet was also good. Would stay at this resort again given the chance.

    Pure Bliss

    Absolutely amazing. Upgrading to the Premium Beachfront Suites is worth every penny because of the quiet and proximity you get from the best part of their private beach. It is made for total relaxation as the resort is full of hammocks, cabanas, beachfront massages, and pools. The water is clear, warm, and shallow, perfect for dipping! We saw the occasional starfish under, but mostly fine white sand. They will wait on you hand and foot, they even had a full-time staff nurse in case you get sick or need first aid. The free buffet is a huge spread of diverse foods they rotate. We truly felt like royalty there!

    The beautiful well maintained beach left is not wanting to leave the resort. The food was delicious with various options and reasonable price. The bathrooms might need some things updated soon.
